I began my teaching career in 1995 with a PGCE from Bath Spa University, having worked as an actor in children’s theatre for 8 years. I have taught throughout primary and early years in a mainstream primary school in Wiltshire and then a mainstream primary school in Bristol where I became Assistant Head Teacher. I have also been a SENCo, Designated Lead for Child Protection and Designated Teacher for Children in Care. For the last 6 years of teaching I set-up and ran a nurture group provision.
